I dont live in Australia, but its probably a hoax or based on bad intel. Bush just had to admit that a subway bombing threat here in the US was a
hoax. And other threats come from tortured prisoners who would probably say anything to get the pain to stop.
Somewhere I read how the crime rate in [some country] dropped drastically after terrorist attacks. The reason given was that criminals were probably
watching the television coverage of the attacks along with the rest of the citizens, and therefore not out commiting crimes. IF the crime rate really
dropped so much, it would probably be to the benifet of a country to fake a terror threat, or even a terror event, just to subdue its citizens with
'shock and awe.' Also an event would give citizens more reason to trade freedom for security.
